Part of setting a beautiful table is the napkins. Add some sweet charm to your tabletop with these easy to make paper bunnies, plain white cotton napkins, various ribbons, and some wooden clothespins decorated with craft paint polka dots made with a pencil eraser.
Sweet and Simple Easter Tablescape
Entertaining is wonderful but sometimes you want to add a little extra something into the decor mix but don’t have a lot of time or money. If that sounds like you, I have a very simple idea that you can put together in no time using items from your craft stash.
Since Easter is the next big holiday I’m sharing a sweet and simple tablescape idea for napkin “rings” as part of the Make Something From Nothing monthly blog hop.
This year I am going to be setting the table with one of my very favorite dish sets – Pfaltzgraff’s Grandma’s Kitchen. I remember the first time I saw this set I wanted it so bad I could taste it (I couldn’t really taste it but I did really, really want it!). It took me over two years to save the money to buy two sets (service for 8) and by the time I had the money saved the set was discontinued. 🙁 I was finally able to find two sets and snatched them up but I would really love to someday have a service for 12.
Since this is a very colorful set with a lot of different design elements I wanted to add something to it that brought out some of the muted tones but would not be overwhelming.
Pencil with Eraser
I chose a plain set of white cotton napkins as the base.
I searched my craft stash and decided to use some colorful ribbon, matching paints, old-fashioned clothes pins and a bunny cut out from a watercolorish scrapbook paper that matched my color scheme. I used my Cricut to cut the bunnies in no time using a bunny template from Cricut Access. I’m finally starting to use my Cricut and oh how I love it!
How-To Add Polka Dots to the Clothespins
For the clothespins, I used a pencil eraser to add colorful polka dots to each clothespin in different colors and allowed the clothespins to dry.Sweet and Simple Table Setting – Putting It All Together
I gathered my supplies: the clothespins, ribbon, napkins and, bunnies and assembled them.
I tied different colored ribbons about one-third of the way down each napkin having the bow or tie to one side. I then placed the clothespin over the ribbon and used it to hold a paper rabbit in place.
Sweet and Simple – the perfect kind of table setting in my opinion.
After you’re done visiting me here I would love for you to visit the other ladies on the hop and check out their beautiful Easter Ideas – Make Something from Nothing.
